Q: When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
A: I was seventeen when I decided I wanted to try my hand at writing. At the time, I didn't own a computer or even a typewriter so I ended up writing it on three ringed lined paper. I never did finish that book, and I still have it sitting in a binder down in my basement. It wasn't until I was in my thirties did I seriously take up writing again.
The very first book I wrote was Lady Knight, which will be published here at Siren. And I actually hand wrote it all on coil ring notebooks before typing it on my computer.
Q: How often do you write?
A: I usually write everyday when I have a work in process. Most days I can write twice a day for about an hour to two hours each time. Sometimes it doesn't work out and I may only write once. Being a stay at home Mom to four children, finding time for myself can sometimes come at a premium. Once I've finished a book I tend to give myself some time off from writing for a week or two to brainstorm the next story I have in my head.
Q: What is your favorite genre to write?
A: When I first started writing I was really into historicals. Now, I have to say my favorite are paranormals.
Q: Who are some of your favorite authors to read?
A: I have quite a few authors I really love to read, but I do have three who are my favoriteMary Janice Davidson, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Karen Marie Moning. I've read just about every book those authors have written.
Q: What do you do with your spare time?
A: Besides writing, I love to read. If it wasn't for the library I would be poor. If I don't have a book to read everyday I start to feel a little lost. I also like to go to the gym a couple times of week. I've done weight training for over twenty years. I call gym workouts my sanity breaks. Slugging around weights is a great stress reliever I've found.
